Barbaresco: Worlds Apart (Oct 2017)

“The 2014 Barbarescos confirm all the potential they showed as recently bottled wines a year ago. Vibrant, perfumed and beautifully delineated, the 2014s capture the essence of what makes Nebbiolo so compelling. In short, the 2014 Barbarescos speak to the essence of site as expressed in one of the most unusual growing seasons in recent memory. Most, if not all, of the region’s reference-point producers made memorable wines, including Gaja, Bruno Rocca, Cigliuti, Moccagatta, Fiorenzo Nada, Ceretto, and the Produttori del Barbaresco, who will also bottle their collection of nine Riservas. The early press on 2014 in Italy was quite pessimistic, which means the 2014s may struggle to gain acceptance in the market. Savvy readers will want to seek out the best of these wines before their quality becomes widely apparent.”
